About

Mustafa Mohamed Ibrahim is 19 years old, and beginning his post-graduate year at Abaarso School of Science and Technology in Somaliland. One of the strongest critical thinkers in the school, he says going to school allowed him the opportunity to see the world in a different way, and to question and have different opinions. He hopes one day to become a mathematician because he says, "Math is a language where you communicate with nature," and it allows you to create and innovate in new ways around complex problems. An area where he enjoys thinking through such problems chess. The best chess player at the school, Mustafa says that chess is a "small world that could represent the whole world," and that chess allows him to reflect on life. He is also an avid runner, and says. "Running is pain. If you can do that you can do anything."

The first and the second born brothers of Isaac completed form four in 2014 through support of well-wishers. The third born is currently in form four at the Mbaikini School and is supported by the guardian family. Isaac did his primary exam in 2014 and passed well with 359 marks and has been admitted at The Mbaikini school. Isaac is a very bright and is among the best top performing students.
